Last year it was put on in conjunction with the Seawheeze Half-Marathon but this year, it was part of Kitsfest, a sports festival.

This was held at Kitsilano Beach not too far from Lululemon’s head office. Can you imagine coming here to have lunch anytime if you worked there?

Mantra Mondays Class at West 4th Lululemon in Kitsilano

This May, the West 4th Lululemon store in Kitsilano is offering free classes in mantra meditation.

I had never taken a class in this so I decided to check it out. Lululemon has offered so many different interesting classes in the past in addition to the usual yoga and running. Some of the more unusual ones: Thai boxing, book binding, candle making and laughing yoga.

The class was led by Jazz Braden.

‘Learn mantra to inspire courage, strength, peace and inner wisdom to deepen your yoga practice while uncovering the power of your inner voice.’

Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

As most people know, Lululemon’s CEO has stepped down and there is a search for a new CEO.

I was walking by the flagship store, West 4th Kitsilano Lululemon and saw their window displays proclaiming their job ad. I loved these windows!

It says, ‘and you thought see through pants were an issue…now accepting CEO applications’.

Here is another sign that says, CEO WANTED APPLY WITHIN.

Here is a button that’s hard to see with the window glare, but it says, PEDRO FOR CEO.

IMGP7766 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

I happened to be walking past the downtown Robson Street Lululemon store and they also have their windows with the job sign. This one says, NOW HIRING CEO.

IMGP7768 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

Here’s another sign on the other side of the window. The sign says, CEO WANTED APPLY WITHIN.

IMGP7770 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

Here is a white tank top that says, PEDRO FOR CEO. I asked an educator why they said that. She told me that it was in reference to the movie, Napoleon Dynamite. I had never seen the movie so I didn’t clue in. She said that it was a joke in the movie.

Here is the white t-shirt version.

IMGP7772 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

Here is the label. It says that it was Designed in Vancouver and Made in Peru. The educator said that these shirts have been in the store for three days. I was surprised to hear that since the resignation announcement was not that long ago.

Did they have these white shirts and then sent them somewhere to get silk screened? Did they get the signs made quickly? Or was the resignation anticipated and all of this stuff made in advance?

For anybody who’s interested, here is the Lululemon headquarters and the entrance to the parking lot! It is in beautiful Kitsilano and blocks from the famous Kitsilano beach! It is also blocks from the first Lululemon store that was opened by Chip Wilson.

Maybe you’ll get an executive parking spot! lol

IMGP7780 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEOIMGP7783 Lululemon CEO Search Window Displays Pedro for CEO

In keeping with their fun job descriptions, some of the job requirements: it’s seeking a leader who can hold a headstand for at least 10 minutes, has Oprah and Chip Wilson on speed dial (among others), communicate in Sanskrit and down wheatgrass and tequila shots on Fridays for work-life balance.

I hear that they received over 160 applications already! I’m looking forward to finding out who will be the next CEO.

Added today:

I found this Workopolis job search site ad in the daily free paper today.

‘Looking for a company that isn’t afraid to be transparent?’ I’m sure that’s in reference to the recent sheer yoga pants incident.

You can also see a yoga mat, a CEO name plate and a pair of groove looking yoga pants.  Wonder who they’re making fun of?

Lululemon Red Fleece Canada Lululemon Hockey Helmet Hat 087

This is a red fleece hat made to look like a hockey helmet. This came out during the Vancouver winter olympics in 2010. During the gold medal mens hockey final, most Vancouverites were watching the game on TV. The West 4th Avenue Lululemon store in Kitsilano (the first Lululemon store) also had a huge TV showing the game (the game was being played downtown but tickets were astronomically expensive).

The staff was handing out these hockey helmet hats to passers by.  It also included a black crayon so you could black in a tooth as well so you’d look like a typical toothless hockey player.

As you can see, it has Canada embroidered across the front. There were also navy colored USA hockey helmet hats as well but no one dared to wear that at this time! (I got one for my American friend only after I promised it wouldn’t be worn until after the game was over).

This is the side view of the hat. It shows the Canadian symbol of a maple leaf embroidered. There are also two holes. You can also see the black strap as well.

Here is the other side view, showing the embroidered Lululemon omega symbol.

Here is the view from the top.

Here is a close up view of the black under the chin strap that you can snap closed. There are white fleece ear covers.

Here is the label inside the hat.

This is such a fun hat and a lot of people wore these while participating in the winter olympics festivities all over Vancouver.

I have such good memories wearing that hockey helmet that day especially when the Canadian mens hockey team won the gold medal! The Canadian womens hockey team also won a gold medal! It was so nice for the host country to win double golds for the men and womens teams! (For both men and womens hockey it was Canada, USA and Finland)

(Team USA got their revenge and did win the gold medal for the mens paralympics hockey.)

Lululemon Free Monday Evening Yoga Classes at the Flagship Kitsilano Lululemon Store

Lululemon is famous for providing free yoga classes at its stores as a way to give back to the community.

I have been attending these free classes for years now. I usually go to the other stores, like Oakridge, Robson Street and the Lululemon Lab rather than the Kitsilano flagship store (the first Lululemon store!), which is only a few blocks away from me. The last time I had attended free classes at the Kits store, they held them upstairs and you had to climb these rickety stairs and pose on squeaky floors.

Now, they operate like the other stores, and hold the classes on the sales floor. I like it better that way than the former upstairs venue.

Tonight, the 8 PM class was packed! Mats were mere inches away from each other. We ran the risk of hitting each other with hands, arms, feet and legs. It was almost claustrophobic for me.

I had never had this instructor before at the other stores’ classes. She was quite good though and ran us through the poses at a fairly quick pace. It wasn’t quite power yoga but it wasn’t a normal pace either.

Finally, we have reached the final pose, Shavasana, or corpse pose, where we lie down like a corpse for an extended period to relax. However, for some odd reason, the instructor decided to blast a religious song in the room at that moment! It was so loud, I had to literally plug my ears. That racket wasn’t allowing me to relax at all. I felt sorry for the people who were lying right beside her speaker! Usually, I love the relaxation and serenity of Shavasana, but not this time!

I would love to return to this class but now I don’t know. Maybe if I come next week and she does the same thing, I can just sneak out early! Note to self: put mat close to the door!

Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon 2012 Video

http://youtu.be/9t0PObnkem0

Thought I’d post the Seawheeze video (official?) that was posted on my neighborhood blog (kitsilano.ca, neighborhood of the first Lululemon store).

This video gives a nice view of how awesome the first Seawheeze was last weekend! Hopefully, people will think about participating next year!
